The weather in Birmingham this morning was perfect running weather! In the 50s when we started and stayed under 70 through the finish. I wish we could enjoy this all summer long! This morning was day 6 in the Runner’s World Run Streak and I knocked out 13 miles. That put this weeks’ mileage at a cool 40. I’m hoping I can continue to rack the miles through the run streak and pick up a little speed in the process.
I ran with the Shijenben group the morning and we headed for a little breakfast post-run. So fun!
I also got the chance to witness my good friend Russ complete his 22 mile run before his upcoming marathon. Russ has had an amazing journey and this morning he received this set of framed photos from a friend of his. Check out his before and after pics!
He has come such a long way and is going to rock his marathon! So proud of you Russ!
Did you run your long run today? How was it?
